All opinions are mine alone. #MARVELSnackBar #CollectiveBias Any type of change or new situation can cause children to feel the jitters.  This Super Hero Lunch is designed to help them feel brave and courageous so they can feel “SUPER” as they face new situations. Super Hero Lunch Every child deals with new situations differently.  One of my boys makes new friends in 5 seconds flat and has never had a hard time with new things, but my other boys always took longer to adjust to new situations.  My youngest just started preschool and he has always been a mama’s boy.  I was curious to see how he would do in preschool since he typically clings to my side when we go places.  We talked a lot about being brave at school before he went and I prepared him with a fun Super Hero Lunch.
